Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
Three days after the murder of Lt. D'bryn Zoë by the mysterious Sarreon, who also massacred the entire crew of the USS Meridian except for Lt. Commander Jack Leirone, we have just concluded D'bryn's memorial service. In full dress uniform, the crew exits holodeck one, going forth to continue their work toward bringing Sarreon to justice. With Atlantis's engineering problems dealt with, crews have converted a cargo bay on the Meridian into a morgue and have mostly cleaned up the grisly scene aboard. As we wait for intelligence on Sarreon's location, work is now focused on getting the Meridian operational again while reinforcements are on the way.

XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 21:29:35
:: smiles :: CEO: Yes, I'm feeling much better. Doctor Acacia's team and their healing capabilities are unmatched. How are you holding up?

:: sits up and gets to work weaving her curls into her familiar duty braids, this time crossing two braids over the top to indicate mourning ::
NAV Lt Navarro 20-Apr-2022 21:29:46
NAV2: Thanks, but I think I'd rather be working right now. That said, you're welcome to keep the helm if you want it. I can go bother the deck gang some more.
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 20-Apr-2022 21:30:43
NAV: Whatever you need. You tell me. :: her voice is uncharacteristically tender ::
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:30:48
XO: Glad to hear. I'm upright, which is saying a lot. Still feels shaky, stiff—like my legs are running on a long-outdated operating system.
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:31:49
Lexy: Come on, let's go get changed. There is work to do. :: gestures toward the arch ::
NAV Lt Navarro 20-Apr-2022 21:32:23
:: catches that in Jester's voice and smiles :: NAV2: I'll take it from here, then, and see you after shift?
CMO LCdr Acacia 20-Apr-2022 21:32:26
:: changes out of the dress uniform and back into a regular blueshirt look, then dons her style of the CMO blue overcoat. She looks at herself in the mirror, making sure she doesn’t look too splotchy ::
CSO Cdr Wright 20-Apr-2022 21:32:31
:: nods tearfully and heads toward the arch, eager to let out her emotions in private ::
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 21:32:31
:: frowns, puzzled a little by Leirone's comparison, but thinks she understands in the end :: CEO: I'm sure you're be feeling better with time. If not, make sure to see Sickbay.
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:33:08
XO: I shall. I hope you get back to a hundred percent as soon as possible.
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:33:39
:: she and Lexy are the last two out, but she leaves the holodeck running, as is custom with a memorial service ::
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 20-Apr-2022 21:33:41
:: logs out of the helm and stands, offering him the seat she just vacated :: NAV: Indeed. You know where to find me.

:: sees Harper emerge, gives Kuari a polite smile, then calls out ::
NAV Lt Navarro 20-Apr-2022 21:34:10
:: takes the helm :: NAV2: Thanks, Jester.
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:34:16
CO: Commodore? A brief word, if you have a moment?
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:34:39
:: looks over to Leirone as he addresses her :: CEO: Yes, Commander?
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:34:40
:: keeps leaning on the wall, wanting to give his legs as much of a break as possible before continuing on ::
CSO Cdr Wright 20-Apr-2022 21:35:14
:: looks at the new CEO when he speaks, then steps away from Kate with a gesture indicating that she'll head home alone ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 20-Apr-2022 21:35:17
:: finally satisfied, she exits her quarters and heads for the turbolift ::
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:35:29
:: nods to Lexy ::
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:36:00
CO: We can discuss the details another time, as this is a little...inopportune. But I just wanted to offer my assistance onboard, if I'm able. You've lost your Chief Engineer, which so happened to be my position on the ship I no longer have.
CO: Not to appear cavalier.
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:36:41
CEO: I appreciate that, Commander. As I mentioned to you in sickbay, I will need you to be Chief on two ships for a while, though some additional staff is on the way.
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 21:36:44
:: smiles again, Leirone's humanity showing through rank appreciated. She opens her mouth to speak, but defers to his interest in Harper, and moves to sit by Wright, watching ::
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:37:06
CEO: That is, assuming that you remember how a Sovereign-class works? :: tries to inject a little levity to the situation ::
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:37:45
CO: Yes, I remember vague clouds of that conversation. My apologies. The pain and medication were affecting me.
CO: I do, I believe. Though I haven't been around one since before you got yourselves a QSD.
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 21:38:30
:: peers at Wright's face as she walks off, wanting to follow, but stays, thinking she perhaps wants to be alone ::
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:39:47
CEO: I think you can figure that part out. :: offers a hand :: Welcome to the crew, Chief.
CSO Cdr Wright 20-Apr-2022 21:40:03
:: walks more rapidly once she's out of sight, and makes it to the Turbolift. :: Computer: Deck 8. :: her voice shaky ::
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:40:27
:: takes Harper's hand :: CO: Thank you, Commodore. I'll do everything I can. :: sighs :: Not the way I imagined returning to this ship.
NAV Lt Navarro 20-Apr-2022 21:40:31
:: as usual, he checks to see if anything needs to be adjusted, but as usual, after Jester has the helm, everything is precisely correct ::
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 20-Apr-2022 21:41:32
:: seeing that everything is in order, heads for the bridge turbolift down to her quarters ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 20-Apr-2022 21:41:59
:: arrives in Sickbay and checks that everything is getting done, reviewing the paperwork from the Meridian cleanup effort ::
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:42:00
:: shakes his hand :: CEO: Well, despite that, we are fortunate to have someone of your experience here to take over. Take over in engineering, then finish coordinating the effort to get the Meridian running again.
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 21:42:41
:: turns to Harper and Leirone, their conversation not quiet enough for her to hear, and ponders the engineer's new position, how daunting it must be ::
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:42:44
CO: Aye, Commodore. I'll get down there as soon as I can. Granted there's somewhere to sit. :: dry smile ::
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:43:20
:: returns the smile as she lets his hand go :: CEO: I think we can manage that.
CSO Cdr Wright 20-Apr-2022 21:43:21
:: finally arrives at their quarters and dives face-down on the couch to cry into a pillow ::
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:44:45
:: pulls away from the wall :: CO: Thank you for your time, Commodore. I'll be in Main Engineering if you need me.
CMO LCdr Acacia 20-Apr-2022 21:44:49
:: sits down in her office to finalize some paperwork ::
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:45:22
:: nods to Leirone :: CEO: And thank you, Commander. :: turns to Kuari ::
NAV Lt Navarro 20-Apr-2022 21:45:39
:: makes a note to bring that bottle of rioja with him to Jester's after duty shift - why drink it alone? ::
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:45:42
:: stiffly makes his way to the TL down the corridor ::
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 21:46:22
:: offers an expression of sympathy, knowing the difficulty of losing one under your command ::
CSO Cdr Wright 20-Apr-2022 21:46:32
:: after a few minutes, the sobbing dies down and she realizes that Anna has curled up on her back and is purring in a very comforting way ::
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:47:38
:: smiles at Kuari, grateful to see her out of sickbay :: XO: It's so good to see you on your feet again, my friend.
CMO LCdr Acacia 20-Apr-2022 21:49:01
:: gets up and replicates herself a nice spiced coffee to take the edge off ::
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 21:49:08
:: smiles, raising her head in a show of strength :: CO: Takes more than an exploding ship to keep me down.
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:49:21
:: steps into the TL:: TL: Main Engineering. :: is grateful that the computer responds to those commands, because he forgets which deck the old stomping grounds are on ::
NAV Lt Navarro 20-Apr-2022 21:49:24
:: taps out a quick message to Emily to check in and see how she's holding up ::
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:50:09
XO: Oh, I know it. :: her smile fades as her expression gradually becomes more serious :: I have a job for you.
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:50:20
:: is flooded with memories from all those years ago ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 20-Apr-2022 21:50:41
:: sits back down and looks at her message notification, tilting her head. Doc’s concern makes her smile. She responds with a picture of her spiced coffee next to her hand making the OK sign ::
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 21:50:50
:: lets her smile fade at the unknown, but gives Harper her full attention ::
CSO Cdr Wright 20-Apr-2022 21:50:52
:: while she has the place to herself and is trapped under a cat, takes the uncommon opportunity to record a personal log with all of her thoughts about D'Bryn and those lost on the Meridian and drifting into musings on how short and fragile life is ::
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:51:18
XO: It may take you a little out of your comfort zone, but I believe that you are ready. Kuari, I need you to take command of the Meridian.
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:51:23
:: narrowly avoiding getting blinded in a freak accident, briefly dating Nicole Weis, meeting Emari when she transferred here as a wet-behind-the-ears second lieutenant ::
:: all those drinks with Adam Drake ::
:: remembers how much this ship felt like it could be the rest of his Starfleet career; Strange how fast things change. ::
NAV Lt Navarro 20-Apr-2022 21:52:43
:: smirks when he gets the reply ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 20-Apr-2022 21:53:23
:: goes back into the paperwork with a bit better of an attitude. Maybe not a smile, but less of a frown ::
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 21:53:27
:: is surprised, but doesn't know why she should be. If she were in Harper's place, the executive officer would be the obvious choice in such a situation, assuming it's temporary. She had never taken command of a ship that was not Atlantis, but certainly she could make do. CO: A temporary assignment, yes? I will do what is needed.
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:53:58
:: exits the TL onto Main Engineering, shambles his way toward a group of engineers ::
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:54:14
XO: Yes, at least until replacement crew arrives. Some will come with the reinforcements, but I don't think there is a Captain among them. We will use as much of Atlantis's crew as we can spare to staff Meridian.
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:54:24
Engineers> :: notice Leirone, turn, stand at the ready :: Davis> Commander.
CTO Cpt Grey 20-Apr-2022 21:55:01
:: is currently in a meeting with the other Marine and Security officers, mapping out their plan of attack, with the entire marine area under lockdown. No one was permitted in currently, with so many active stations and different things pulled up. ::
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 21:55:58
:: nods, her mind whirling with the implications of her new duties, knowing she wouldn't be staffing the ship alone :: CO: I will need a crew then. Who shall we spare?
CSO Cdr Wright 20-Apr-2022 21:56:16
:: wraps up her personal log, thinks for a moment, then records an order for all of the Operations crew under her command that helped clean up the horrors on the Meridian to attend mandatory counseling ::
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:56:47
XO: Take Lt. Commander T'Lira as your XO. I think she's ready for that responsibility.
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:56:49
Engineers: I know this isn't easy. I know how strange it can be with a routine transfer, so I can imagine how... how jarring this must be, given the circumstances. I've just now finalized joining the crew. Though it will be on an interim basis, I want you to know that I will devote everything I can to making this ship, and this department, run the best it can.
Davis> :: bows his head :: Other Engineers> :: nod slowly, mumble Ayes and the like ::
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 21:58:02
:: nods some more :: CO: Good choice. And Leirone will be in charge of repairs. I don't envy his job.
CMO LCdr Acacia 20-Apr-2022 21:58:05
:: sees Wright’s mandatory counseling order come through, realizes she had yet to do so and thus ammends the order to apply to all crew who were on the Meridian, and puts the order through the medical system promptly so that everyone will be notified of their appointment times ::
CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:59:06
Engineers: We have a tough road ahead of us. Not only do we need to shore up things on our end, but we're going to split our crew to requisition the Meridian and use it in the coming mission. I don't know this crew at all, so I'd like to ask for a volunteer to assist me in dividing our team to be as efficient on both ships as possible.
CSO Cdr Wright 20-Apr-2022 21:59:06

CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 21:59:34

CEO LCdr Leirone 20-Apr-2022 21:59:42
Davis: Thank you. What's your name, Ensign?
Davis> Davis, sir. Connor Davis.
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 22:00:08

Davis: Alright, Mr. Davis. Why don't you and I... :: winces, shifts, grunts softly :: ...Why don't you and I find a place to sit down and start hashing this out. The rest of you, in the meantime, let's get Atlantis's systems back up to where they were before that monster sabotaged us. And please, feel free to come to me with any concerns.

CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 22:15:29

CSO Cdr Wright 20-Apr-2022 22:15:57
Kate: I was almost done. But you can come in if you like.

XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 22:18:00
:: looks briefly at the fighters resting in the bay, then meets T'Lira's eyes :: CAG: I'm to take command of the USS Meridian. I need an executive officer. I believe you to be the most appropriate for the position.
CAG LCdr T’Lira 20-Apr-2022 22:19:03

:: shakes her head as she wets her hair :: Lexy: No, but I have to pretend otherwise.
CSO Cdr Wright 20-Apr-2022 22:19:35
:: nods solemnly, understanding but not liking it ::
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 22:20:53
:: scrubs at her face since she's been crying :: Lexy: I... I did not tell you, but the morning after, I... well, I broke down in the holodeck. Zoë was supposed to meet me there for a run, and realizing that was all I could take.
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 22:21:06
:: picks up on the Vulcan's slight hesitation, but it doesn't necessarily show any sort of surprise, as she is Vulcan, but can't help but offer a smile if not for her own sake :: CAG: We'll be in this together. This is new to me, commanding a different ship, but command is command, really. Can I count on you?

:: gratefully returns the hug ::
:: speaks up after a few long moments :: Lexy: Coach showed up and helped, like always. :: chuckles, despite herself ::

CSO Cdr Wright 20-Apr-2022 22:28:03

XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 22:32:22
:: smiles at Acacia's greeting and sits opposite her desk on the floor :: CMO: Hello, Doctor. I'm taking command of the USS Meridian and I will need medical staff. I'll leave it up to you to choose the number appropriate for a Prometheus class Sickbay considering what you have to spare.

CMO LCdr Acacia 20-Apr-2022 22:34:12
:: smiles back, happy to see Kuari getting her own command :: XO: Of course. I will select a temporary staff and brief them for you. How about Sanjit Straynj for your CMO?
CO Cdor Harper 20-Apr-2022 22:34:16
Lexy: Yes, we do. :: wonders about dropping this news on her now, but the segue is right there :: And it is good that we do... Kuari is taking command of the Meridian, making you Acting XO while she is gone.

CMO LCdr Acacia 20-Apr-2022 22:52:19
Straynj: Hey, Doctor Straynj! Guess what you're getting up to the next few days...
XO Cdr Kuari 20-Apr-2022 22:54:13
:: feels more at home in her old environment, speaking to a fellow marine :: CTO: I'm taking command of the USS Meridian temporarily, until we can find a replacement crew.
